Superior Poker



Superior Poker is one of the newer entries into the online industry. As a site founded by Poker enthusiasts, they have endeavored to create a better gaming experience than the big names. While they lack the big dollar advertising campaigns of the competition, Superior has put together a pretty nice site.


Superior’s home page looks clean and professional; it isn’t cluttered or full of advertising which is a refreshing change. The menu is easy to use and everything you need is there. Despite the accessibility, the menu only houses the bare minimum; however everything is easy to use and complete so it’s not so bad.


The download and software installation at Superior Poker are both seamless easy tasks. Everything is quick, including the registration process, and you’re up and running in very little time.


Once you get to the lobby, the game selection at Superior Poker is impressive. They have all the big games, but they also have some of the less known Poker derivatives, like Big Two, and Guts. These are both great games and it’s good to see an online site providing them to players. The lobby itself has a good layout and everything is easy to find.


Having chosen my game, I sat down and played a few hands. Superior has a very nice layout and attractive visuals, but unfortunately they suffer from the “table of numbers” syndrome, as there are no “people” at your table. This is kind of plain to look at, but the colours are nice and graphics are crisp. The game goes quite quickly too, which is definitely a plus. They also offer Player Notes, and a Buddy List, so the whole package makes for good overall gameplay.


Superior Poker offers an ample selection of Tournaments; from WPT satellites to sit and go with bonuses, they’ve got almost everything covered. There is a regular frequency for the tournaments, and despite Superior’s slightly less than average population, they all seem pretty busy. The only complaint I have about Superior’s tournaments is that they don’t offer Freerolls, which are available at most sites.


Promotions at Superior are average; they offer good bonuses for some tournaments, and do generous deposit bonuses, but they don’t have the promotional volume of some of their competition. Superior does have some innovative ideas however, as their “treasure hunt” is a good concept, and they even waive the rake on small pots.


Overall, Superior Poker has put together a very good site. The 0 rake, clean game play, and tournament volume make for a solid package in this very competitive industry. If they could just get some nicer graphics and a few more players, Superior would be very close to the top of my list.
